Blog loving Easter Hop!

Posted by on Apr 5, 2019 in Uncategorized | 5 comments

Welcome to the April Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month we are celebrating Easter.  That time when spring has bloomed, bunnies roam leaving chocolate eggs, and flowers are beautiful.  Life just seems sweeter this time of year.  I have been looking forward to using the Gingham Gala designer series paper so very much.  And celebrating Easter seemed to be the perfect opportunity!  I love how well the Gingham paper goes with the Daffodil from You’re Inspiring


  • the daffodils from the You’re Inspiring stamp set were stamped with black ink
  • I used the stampin’ wright markers to color the image
  • Then the sentiment was stamped.  I did not realize that the Happy Easter was crocked untill I started taking the pictures.  I decided to leave it because, Handmade cards do not have to be perfect!  Right???? At least that is what I am trying to tell myself as I cringe looking at the picture!  Really, I am trying to let it go….really!!!
  • the final step was to pop the colored image up on the card.

Thank you for stopping by today!   I hope you will continue to hop along using the guide below!

One Word – Green!

Posted by on Mar 20, 2019 in Uncategorized | 8 comments

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GREEN. We are excited to share our creations with you today – there’s a wonderful variety of styles and occasions celebrated in this hop! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I have really been enjoying a moment with very simple cards. There is always something refreshing in remembering the things that first brought you to paper crafting.  For me it was that moment when you stamped a perfect image!!! What could be better than stamping done right

I fell in love with the Seasoned with Kindness stamp set when I saw our fearless Inking Royalty Leander make an awesome card!  You can see Brian’s card here

Seasoned with Kindness

Seasoned with Kindness

This set just perfect for little hello and thank you cards.  Especially when paired with the sentiments in Varied Vases.

So, this is supposed to be all about green!  I picked two of my favorite Stampin’ Up! greens.  Call me Clover which is one of the current In Colors.  The second green is Mint  Macaron.  Mint Macaron is my absolute favorite Stampin’ Up! green.

  • The images were stamped with black ink
  • Then using Stampin’ Wright Markers the image was colored
  • The final step was to use a Mint Macaron border to bring the card together

  • I have been adoring white ink lately! I love how it look here on Mint Macaron paper!
  • The black border and sentiment makes the white pop!

  • Here the leaves are stamped in white. Then stamped in black ink all on Call me Clover

  • This card was also colored with Stampin’ Wright Markers.  Tiny images are often easier to color with the Stampin’ Wright Markers verses the Stampin’ Blends . The Stampin’ Wright Markers allows you to quickly color.  You can add two layers to create light and darks
